Fruit Set = number of initial fruitlets as a proportion of the number of blossoms; Yield Loss = number of damaged fruit at harvest as a proportion of the total number of fruit; Net outcome = the number of undamaged fruit as a proportion of the number of initial blossoms per branch. Asterisks indicate a significant difference between open and exclusion means for the relevant yield parameter (p< 0.05).
